“Gorgeous Beachfront”
Reviewed 15 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My wife and I got married in Grand Cayman Island. We had stayed somewhere else in Seven Mile Beach and wanted to have our own time away from everyone. We chose White Sands due to the reviews on Tripadvisor and its location.

The beachfront is absolutely gorgeous. There are sun loungers for each apartment and our ground floor apartment went right out to the sand. The coconut trees provide shade as does the centre tree which illuminates beautifully at night. There are hammocks in between some of these trees. The water is far calmer than other parts but there are large rocks and it gets deep very quickly. Be prepared to see some shoals of fishes swimming by very close (5 metres) to the beach. As a relaxing beach holiday this place is excellent.

The public part of the beach is very small and due to its secluded location very few of the riff raff come to this part of the beach. They mainly stay at near the public beach which can be very crowded. The Cafe/bars are located near this busy part of the beach and the nearest supermarket is about 15 minutes walk away but you can always get the bus. The road is not paved like the rest of Seven Mile Beach so tread carefully.

The actual apartment is very much average and nothing to rave about. It is adequate but the rooms are far smaller than our previous villa in Seven Mile Beach. The apartment was serviced daily but at the quite inconvenient time of 0830 and the amount of toiletries were not as generous as our previous villa. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were ample amount of towels in the apartments but the they were not replaced daily and had to be washed in the washing machine in the kitchen. There is only one TV in the living room which has Cable but the reception was very poor and some channels inaccessible.

This is a perfect location if you just want to get away from the crowds and enjoy the beach and relax. It is secluded which means that to get to the bars supermarkets and other locations takes a bit more effort. The only downside is the apartment which could be a bit nicer and more updated.
